Despite all the crap going on I think they still go alright. Good mix of tough forwards and some real spark in the backline. Took Moylan half a season to adjust to sharks style and permanent switch to 6 but then looked good. And now switching back to 1 will give him a little more space, but again test his positional play.

Losing Holmes and Ramien leaves a hole tough to fill particularly when (& I don't say if) Dugan gets injured as they don't seem to have the depth, despite the addition of Johnson.
They're also the type of side that just knows how to win. Last year there was a patch where they were racking up win after win and quite often they weren't actually the better side on the day. Fifita, Graham and the much maligned Dugan and Gallen all have that ability to surge and single handedly win games.

A lot of people have massive wraps on Xerri. According to the media the only reason he didn’t play last year is because he wasn’t old enough. He progressed from flegg to 20’s to ISP and scored a hat trick on debut for Newtown.

I think you start with him and push Dugan to the wing in place of Gray.

John Morris named Cronulla Sharks interim coach

Cronulla CEO Barry Russell has defended the decision to install John Morris as interim Sharks head coach despite Shane Flanagan not yet responding to the NRL's breach notice against him.

"We needed the one person in that position, we needed the one voice – we needed a boss," Russell said. "But the word 'interim' is crucial in all this. Until we have some clarity in regards to Shane we can't make ultimate decisions on the head coach."

Club statement:

The Sharks can today announce that John Morris has been appointed as Interim Head Coach, effective immediately, with Jim Dymock to remain assistant coach.

Morris completed his Masters of Coaching in 2014, before becoming the Elite Development Coach of the Sharks Academy in 2015 and taking over as Cronulla's Holden Cup Coach in 2016.

Morris guided the Sharks NYC team to the minor premiership in 2017 in just his second season of full-time coaching. He was named the 2017 NYC Coach of the Year.

Notching up 300-games in his NRL career, with five seasons and 105 games for the Sharks, Morris will now step into the role of Interim Head Coach for the Sharks.

Cronulla Sharks CEO Barry Russell welcomed John's appointment, stating that "the Club is delighted to be able to give John the opportunity to step up into the Interim Head Coach role and has full confidence in his ability to lead our Football program into the 2019 season."

I have had the opportunity to chat to Morris a couple of times since his retirement and believe he has has the makings of a very good coach. The biggest question mark is if it has come to early and with all the turmoil and an aging squad are the Sharks a bit of a poisoned chalice.

I hope the Sharks fail miserably but somehow Morris comes out of it looking good!

Yeah it's tough for a player to transition to a coaching position while former teammates are still in the side.

All Sharks players banned from venue in the Shire...

Cronulla Sharks investigate after squad banned from local nightspot

Cronulla is investigating an incident in a local nightspot which has reportedly seen the club’s entire NRL squad banned from the venue. Several scuffles were alleged to have broken out involving lower grade players at the Cronulla Sailing Club on a night out in December.

“I can confirm there was an incident, which is being investigated by the club,” Cronulla chief executive Barry Russell said.

Cronulla Sharks interim coach John Morris wants the top job

Sharks interim coach John Morris says he wants the job permanently if it becomes available once Shane Flanagan's fate is known.

"Look I do [want the head coach role] and I haven't really made any comments about it because I do understand it's a sensitive period around Shane and his family," Morris said.
